Work on tarring of the Karoi-Binga Road is set to resume after Government committed to funding the second phase of the project since the completion of the first 10km-stretch.

The initial part of the second phase will reportedly cover a further 5km stretch, starting just after Zvipani Business Centre as Government through the District Development Fund (DDF) pushes to eventually cover the 334km Binga-Karoi Highway.  Hurungwe District development coordinator Mr Andrew Tizora said there were indications that funding for the next 5km stretch was set to be released soon, paving way for the resumption of the project.

The Zimbabwe government has stepped up major road rehabilitation programmes across the country as it closes in on its 2018 target to spruce up over 50 000 kilometres of road. Treasury released $252 million for projects covering both urban and rural roads. Part of the funds are now being channelled towards dualising major arterial roads such as the Beitbridge-Masvingo Road. Road construction works have created more than 10 000 jobs so far. A progress report seen by The Sunday Mail last week shows that work on the Lupane-Nkayi highway in Matabeleland  North – which is set to cut the distance from Harare to Victoria Falls - has since been rehabilitated, while 40 percent of work on the Bulawayo-Victoria Falls Road has been completed.
